Message From Sheriff Blake Dorning


Dear Citizens of Madison County,


Welcome Spring – A Message from the Sheriff



As winter comes to a close and spring approaches, we at the Madison County Sheriff’s Office remember spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, Easter is around the corner, and graduation draws near for our students. We celebrate these good times in our community.

If our Deputies – including our Reserve Deputies – can help with traffic control or security monitoring at special events, please call us well in advance of a scheduled event. If at all possible, we will help provide coverage for you.


We also want to remind you with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. This is especially the case now the days are longer and children are out of the house taking advantage of extended playtime. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:


  • Wear your seat belts.
  • Obey speed limits.
  • Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
  • Don't text while driving.
  • Make sure children are in the correct car seat and buckled in.


For many more driving safety tips, please visit the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration at:


Make sure to sign up for your Sheriff’s Office ALERTS on our website ( and continue to follow us on Social Media to include Twitter, Facebook, NextDoor, and Nixle.


Thank you for your continued support to law enforcement in the Tennessee Valley and this agency. We look forward to the great times the season of spring will bring!




Blake L. Dorning
